This month we catch up with writer, coach and Kingston business studies graduate Sandra Hewett. She tells us about her new book, A Woman's Guide to Working for Herself which provides a motivational look at the rise of female entrepreneurs.
Oh dear... 1976–1980.
Business Studies BA(Hons).
Playing squash, boyfriends!
Yes – to teach! And for a tutor retirement party.
Yes, a fellow PR luvvie.
Become a famous journalist. No.
It grew like topsy, I discovered so much about women and the vast range of enterprises they set up. It is the nuts and bolts, the motivations, the blood, sweat and tears.
Annick Hogg. She turned Multinational Business into a political awakening. Great!
Apart from my book? Winning the England Netball Under 15 tournament.
Don't tread so lightly.
Ugly Betty – Mark's face when Wilhelmina came into the room behind him and he said, “She's here, isn't she?”
Having a late breakfast and going for a country walk. Not working.
I was in Manhattan on 9/11.
Who would you take with you any why? The spirit of Anita Roddick. I'd learn a lot from her and she would know how to build a shelter.
What book would you take and why? Difficult one. Probably His Dark Materials Trilogy by Philip Pullman (could I have all three?). I would see something different in it every time I read it.
What movie would you take and why? The Graduate. Innocence, naughtiness and Dustin Hoffman rolled into one.
What food item would you take and why? Brazil nuts, I've read they are good for you.
